Description of Fizik Volta R1 Braided Carbon Saddle - black
Made for Snakes!
The Volta R1 - Classic shape yet lightweight, futuristic and comfortable.
More seating position possibilities without compromise mean more comfort and more performance. The carbon shell provides flexible and comfortable seating. The three-dimensional braided carbon Mobius rails with a core of uni-directional carbon-fibers increase strength more than standard carbon rails. The rails are oval with a size of 7x9 mm. The cover is made of Microtex. The wide shaped saddle nose ensures more comfort.
Ergonomic dip platform. TWINFLEX™ the multi-directional outer edged carbon fiber reinforces strength while the bi-directional orientation of the shells inner carbon and kevlar woven fibers provide comfort. The transition between the two carbon structures is seamless.
The combination of the two materials allows the saddle to flex but only to the point that the stiff outer shell will permit because the kevlar/carbon shell is essentially "bonded" to its stiff outer shell: hammock-like feeling - amazing comfort.
TWIN FLEX™ shell is the essential element to comfort and provides a large "sweet spot" area for pressure distribution of soft tissue and pudental artery and nerve area.
The Volta R1 Snake implements Fizik's proven Spine Concept which offers different saddle shapes suiting riders with different amounts of spine flexibility. The "Snake" shape is optimized for riders with a very flexible spine.
